It was a successful and fun ending for a project to help raise money for Comox Valley Families in need.

Last month, the Comox Community Center hosted a window colouring challenge for families in the valley.

They were encouraged to visit the center and paint a window, designed as a giant colouring book, all while spending time doing something fun and exciting together as a family. 

Through that fun and creative initiative , $410 was raised for You Are Not Alone (YANA).

“It was great to have families into our building, to paint our windows and add Spring colour to the Community Centre,” said Recreation Supervisor, Amy Bauman.

“Doing this while fundraising for YANA, there is no better way to show community spirit.” 

Bauman says this activity replaced the long standing Easter Eggstravaganza hosted by Comox Recreation as a fundraiser for YANA and she hopes to have it return in 2022. 

If you want to see what the creations look like, they will be up until the end of the month.
